Initial Thoughts:

The Mariners split squads once again and take on a White Sox split squad in Glendale today while the other squad takes on the Reds back in Peoria tomorrow. Scott Baker gets the start today along with a mix of presumed starters and backups.

Final Thoughts:

The Mariners are 6-2 but it’s not on the field that’s making news today. News broke about a possible trade involving the Yankees and Mariners. Details on that can be found here.

Seems has projected Abraham Almonte to be the starting centerfielder for the Mariners. Interesting to say the least.

Taijuan Walker threw today, said he felt good. He is scheduled to do some more throwing tomorrow.

Finally, this from Bob Dutton:

Enjoy the game.
